After I went through extensive therapy, it was brought to my attention that I was associating my past to my present. For example, a former co-worker and I became friends outside the workplace. During our friendship, I noticed a behavior that I was not fond of. It was difficult for her to admit when she was wrong. She never took ownership of her wrong doing. This type of behavior began to infuriate me, and I stopped talking to her. I justified my reasons for not talking to her because I thought she was self-centered and cared about only herself.
In actuality, her behavior reminded me of my mother. My mother had a hard time taking accountability for her actions. I didn’t realize this until after my co-worker and I stopped talking. My issues were stemming from my mother, and not her, so I forgave my mother and released her in love. I also forgave myself for allowing my past to interfere with my present.
